From Sky Queen to ER Angel

Posted by on 2:54 pm in Uncategorized | 1 comment

This essay, written by Lorena Birt, is bittersweet and so beautiful. Lorena was my roommate at Continental training and she is one of the best FAs I know. Before Continental, she had a long career as an international FA with Northwest. She hung up her wings to become a nurse a few years ago. So many aspiring flight attendants are chasing a dream as a second career. Lorena did it the other way. She left the sky to pursue a second dream career as an ER nurse. Our lives are made up of so many chapters and each one is valuable. No matter what...

Abbie Unger’s Mornings Australia TV Interview

A few weeks ago, I was in a fitting room at Talbots, trying on white jeans. It was my birthday and my mom and I had just gotten our nails done and we were spending the rest of our free time shopping. The jeans were perfect. After I put my own clothes back on, I checked my phone for new notifications and I saw I had received a tweet from a morning show in Australia. They had read the Huffington Post article I was interviewed for and they wanted to interview me! Fast forward 5 days and that is exactly what happened. I was interview on Mornings...

A Good Flight Attendant Changes Everything

Hello Dreamers and Flyers,                                                                                                           Below you find a guest post from a friend of mine, Colleen.

Colleen gives some good insight into how we as flight attendants can help. On the...

Budgeting Tips for New Flight Attendants

Posted by on 1:38 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Hi Dreamers,  I am asked all the time about money. “How can anyone live on a new hire salary?”  I’m going to be honest and tell you it is hard. Other than that I don’t have a great answer, but my friend, Melissa, has a great answer and she was kind enough to guest post on the blog. In 2010, Melissa made a commitment to get better with the family finances. At that time, she and her husband were living paycheck to paycheck, had no money in savings and no financial goals. By September of 2013, they had paid off over...

How to Become a Travel Agent

Posted by on 11:03 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Do you love to travel? Of course you do, right?  I mean, why else would you want to become a flight attendant? From time to time, I am asked if I know of any other jobs a flight attendant can do to supplement their income, or if I know of any jobs that can scratch that travel itch while you are waiting to earn your wings.
